i don't get why msnbc is apologizing. FOX wouldn't apologize for saying something racially insensitive or besmirching liberals.

Nothing was wrong with it. If you don't get the big deal you probably aren't a racist.

Cheerios are racist against non-circular letters.

Cheerios support the letter "o" and biracial people.

It's a conspiracy engineered by Obama!

If there's anything offensive, it's the commercial with Buzz. "Swag" needs to stop.

Too many biracial people would cause the apocalypse.

These people wouldn't know whether eat more mayo or do the dougie.

That confusion will lead to the overthrow of government and mass cannibalism.

Wake up, America.

They've always been; it's just this time they have a valid complaint.
